Reignite your spark

Life is full of ups and downs. One minute we’re riding the high tides like Crush the sea turtle from Finding Nemo (Duuuuude) the next we’re feeling sorry for ourselves, moping around like the world’s giving us a raw deal. For me recently, I’ve been a real feet-scuffer, doing my day to day thing in…

Bare foot healing

As I sit down to write this post, my beautiful purple and green fluorite crystal is sitting faithfully beside me. This type of crystal is said to be effective against electromagnetic stress and pollution emanating from computers. I went in search of it about 4 months ago after I noticed that I was feeling extremely drained and ‘heavy’ after…

How toxic are your personal care products?

I was contemplating buying some nail polish online recently and was scouring the different ‘natural’ brands, but finally decided its was all too hard because I didn’t know what ingredients were safe and what weren’t. I was a very unsatisfied shopper! It was then I realised just how much my new understanding of toxins (and how adversely they affect my…

Emotional eating

I just read this beautiful, powerful quote and it was the inspiration I needed to get this post happening. I haven’t put anything onto this blog before that has made me quite so nervous about sharing, but here I am, ready and willing to bare something quite personal, with anyone who reads my blog.

Good emotion.Its been amazing and to be honest, I’m a little hooked. Being in a room full of people who are all there for the same beautiful purpose is quite powerful. We are…

Getting caught up

I just read a post from one of my favourite bloggers, Sarah Wilson (read it here) and it resonated with me so very much. The past couple of weeks I have felt a little lost, as though I was searching for something but I didn’t know what it was. I’ve had an elusive feeling that…

The art of imperfection

We’d all love to get it right every time, to do our best work and to be the best version of ourself. But, when the pressure to always achieve becomes a lingering shadow in our life, we need to take a step back and ask if we have let perfectionism take hold. We need to…

Food wastage – The environmental issue we overlook

I care about the environment and I try to make decisions that minimise my footprint. I recycle & buy recycled, I turn off the lights when I leave a room, I carry a reusable water bottle, I shop at the farmers’ market to buy local, organic foods and I choose non toxic cleaning products. Recently…

Gratitude changes everything

I don’t know exactly when I started to be more thankful but it was sometime in the past 12 months. Now, it just keeps accumulating, like an ever-growing list of all these amazing things that surround me that I am so completely grateful for. I don’t know why I became more grateful either, but I…
